Imagine what would happen if your mere presence near your computer automatically triggered logging in to your Google, Facebook and Twitter accounts? Check out this new app that works with your mobile phone to fire up your computer’s social accounts whenever you are near. While the app is for desktop or laptop use, it was developed by an unlikely source: the Ford Motor Company!
It’s called Ford KeyFree, and it was developed as a Chrome extension. While you are near your computer, you stay logged in. The minute you and your phone walk away, all of your social accounts log out automatically.
The extension will be available soon.
